    In response to state Sen. Barbara Bailey's recent email survey, I sent the following response, which did not appear to go through to her directly: I would support a small gas-tax increase if I could be assured it would be spent wisely, but looking at previous Washington Department of Transportation performance, that seems hard to expect. 1.

    OH NO, not again! Surely the Vale district council has learned not to risk closing Abingdon's Abbey Meadow Swimming Pool! The Conservatives almost closed the pool in 1980 but didn't. The LibDems closed it in 2005 but reopened it.

    I REFER to your article about military land surrounding Arncott.

    WE note with interest your report that Chilton Railways held a public meeting on February 17 to share its plans for the station and to consult on a possible name change.

  9. What about Bicester Garden Town for a name?Read the original story w/Photo

    1 hr ago | Oxford Mail

    I, TOGETHER with numerous other local residents, welcome the major upgrading of the Bicester to Oxford railway, in particular since once open again it will alleviate pressure on the A41, and in particular the A34 to Oxford and beyond down to the South Coast. Those of us who travel regularly on these roads will know that any unfortunate accident, vehicle breakdown or roadworks etc leads to massive congestion issues on these already clogged highways.
